Coli outbreak reaches Minnesota, with 10 cases reported

Romaine lettuce is recalled after a 10 cases are reported in Minnesota

The outbreak of E. coli contaminating romaine lettuce in the US was first announced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on April 10, yet one month later, the outbreak has affected over 120 people across 25 states, including Missouri, and has claimed one life in California.

According to the CDC, 25 states have reported cases of E. coli linked to romaine lettuce.

In Minnesota, there are now 10 confirmed cases of E. coli O157.

Since last week, another four people have gone into kidney failure, and an additional 23 have been sickened overall.

The Texas Department of State Health Services said the individual reported being sick in early April. Numerous people sickened across the country ate chopped lettuce that had been sold in bagged form to restaurants. Both MDH and MDA are continuing to investigate. One death was reported from California which was previously reported in the May 2 update. Fifty-two have required hospitalization.

The CDC continues to urge consumers to avoid eating or buying any kind of romaine lettuce from the Yuma region. "The Yuma growing region includes part of western Arizona and extends into the Imperial Valley of southeastern California, but does not include Salinas Valley or other growing regions in California".

Grocery stores, restaurants and other providers have been alerted to the possible spread of E. coli, tracing the romaine lettuce back to a Yuma, Arizona, growing region. People typically fall ill two to five days after exposure, and most recover in five to 10 days if they don't develop complications.

Antibiotics are not recommended for patients with suspected E. coli O157 infections until diagnostic testing can be performed and E. coli O157 infection is ruled out.

Shiga-toxin-producing E. coli - the kind involved in this outbreak - is so potent that the Department of Homeland Security even lists it as a potential agent of biological warfare. Anyone who believes they may have developed an E. coli O157 infection should contact their health care provider.

Although E. coli is typically to primarily pose a danger to elderly people and very young children, the median age of those affected in this outbreak is 29.
